Applications, systems, and services used by businesses have evolved over the years, complicating the enterprise ecosystem. With the growing need to connect heterogeneous endpoints in various locations, businesses end up with a divided ecosystem – with systems on-premises needing to communicate with applications in the cloud.
Enabling seamless connectivity between systems and services across the enterprise requires a Hybrid Integration Platform (HIP). An HIP leverages both an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and cloud-based integration technology, like an iPaaS solution to support the implementation of applications that leverage cloud and on-premises resources. To accelerate the establishment of an HIP in your organization, Gartner provides best practices that highlight how your organization can best use a hybrid integration platform that supports cloud-to-cloud, cloud-to-ground and on-premises integration.
